Wednesday will be a busy signing day

Astate will have a busy early signing period on Wednesday with men's and women's basketball, volleyball and baseball all expected to add signees. Baseball is expected to lead the way with the most signings.


Arkansas State Coach Tommy Raffo’s team, becoming one of the most consistent programs in the conference, will add at least five players this week, including three on the first day of the early signing period.

Right-handed pitcher Peyton Culbertson of Collierville, Tenn., a left-handed hitting middle infielder Neil Lambert of Pontiac Township, Ill;, and left-handed pitcher Brandon Stuckenschneider of Poplar Bluff, Mo. Stuckenschneider was the first commit of the current class.

Others signing this week are RHP JD Miller of Crowder (Mo.) College. Miller is from Sherwood and played high school ball at Sylvan Hills and Garett Huff, a right-handed hitting middle infielder, from Geona Central, which is near Texarkana.

Outfielder Casey Vaughn of Crowder, who is from Cabot, has also committed to the Red Wolves. A-State will also have a pair of prospects visiting this weekend.

The Red Wolves basketball teams also expect to sign one player each.

John Brady's team will ink 6-foot 6 Christian Davis of Texas powerhouse Dallas Kimball.

Point guard Kylie Ladd of Ozark will sign with Coach Brian Boyer's team.

The youthful Red Wolves' volleyball team will add Arkansas products Alden Weeks of Nettleton and Ashton Sitkowski of Russellville.
